Topic: New guest, Dr. Anne-Marie Hancock DVM, shares information about newer research on the nervous system for both humans and horses. We discuss the vagal nerve as part of the autonomic nervous system and the difference between the ventral vagal state and dorsal vagal. Noticing signs of our horse in a dorsal vagal state or “shutting down” or “freezing” is important, not only for training but for our horse’s health through the entire body system. Dr. Hancock explains the significance of the vagal nerve as the largest nerve in the body and how it affects all the vital organs.
